PREFACE. 



In the year 1868 a "Genealogy of the Brubach- 
er family and connections" was written out for 
my own satisfaction, as also for future reference. 
In the year 1870, while visiting in Canada, Uncle 
John Brubacher (Deacon) earnestly requested 
that it should be printed-, giving two dollars to- 
wards the expense. He succeeded in gaining the 
promise. To fulfill that promise, by the help of 
the Lord, the original has been rewritten and 
enlarged. Care was taken to gather reliable in- 
formation. Any doubtful information was not 
accepted. Xotwithstanding, errors will be found, 
because of incorrect information. Whenever a 
— — occurs the necessary information could not 
be ascertained. The figures enclosed, thus (1) 
indicate the generation in America, thus: (1) 
John Brubacher, (1) Theodore Eby, &c., indicates 
that they were the first generation in America. 
Hoping all honor will be given to the Lord, the 
"Genealogy" is now respectfully submitted to the 
public. Jacob N. Brubachee.

THE 



BRUBACHER GENEALOGY. 



(i) John Brubacher. 

(first generation in AMERICA.) 



(i) John Brubacher emigrated from 
Switzerland, Europe, to America about the 
year 1710. On the 27th of September, 17 17, 
he, in company with Christian Hershey, 
took out a warrant of 1000 acres of land, ly- 
ing on the Little Conestoga, in West 
Hempfield Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa. Here 
on this tract of land, John Brubacher built 
the first grist and saw mill in Lancaster Co. 

In the year 17 18 John Brubacher and 
Christian Hershey divided the above tract 
of 1000 acres into two equal shares of 
500 acres each by a line east and west, 
Brubacher getting the southern half and 
Hershey the northern half Whether John 
Brubacher was married when he came to 
America cannot be ascertained.

In the year 1729, May 13th, John Bru- 
bacher and his wife Anna, sold and con- 
veyed 150 acres of the above 500 acres, on 
which were erected the grist and saw mill, 
to Christian Stoneman. Tradition says, he 
was under the impression that the " Milling 
business" has a tendency to lead men into 
dishonesty.

• ' 



(2) John Brubacher. 

(second generation in AMERICA.) 

The following- is a description of (2) John 
Brubacher and his descendants : 

John Brubacher was born in the year of 
our Lord 17 19, in West Hempfield town- 
ship, Lancaster Co=, Pa. He died April 9th, 
1804, aged 84 years and 7 months. After 
he had grown to manhood he wished to go 
to Germany to seek himself a wife. His 
father sent him to Virginia for money — his 
father had land in Virginia. But when he 
returned from Virginia the neighbors had 
dissuaded his father from letting him go to 
Germany. The father died. Then (2) 
John went to Germany where he was re- 
ceived with joy. He married Maria New- 
comer in the year 1750, eight days before 
Whitsuntide. He with his wife Maria, re- 
turned to America. His cousin Abraham 
Brubacher accompanied them. Abraham 
was so well pleased with the new country 



12 



that he wrote enticing letters to his brothers 
and sisters who also emigrated to America. 
More of their friends followed from time to 
time. One of the main causes was that they 
were subjected to many persecutions be- 
cause of their faith and non-resistant doc- 
trine. They had confidence in the proclama- 
tions of William Penn, feeling assured if 
once in Pennsylvania they could worship 
the God of their fathers according to the 
teachings of God's Word and the dictates 
of their consciences ; which was unto them 
a full and a complete recompense for all their 
losses and privations in forsaking their 
native land. 

Abraham Brubacher settled at the Middle 
Creek, in Clay township, Lancaster Co., Pa. 
In course of time he wanted to build a grist 
mill there. He met with difficulties on 
account of the " Water Right" which so of- 
fended him that he moved away. He 
moved into the yicinity called Indiantown, 
not far from where Ephrata now is. Here 
he settled. Hence his descendants are 
called the " Indiantown Brubachers." He 
begat children. The name of one was 
Abraham. He was a Preacher. The name 
of another one was Christian. 

His descendants of the " Indiantown 
Brubachers are all scattered far. 



— 13 — 

After (2) John and Maria Brubach r re- 
turned to America, they settled at the 
Hammer Creek in Warwick township, Lan- 
caster Co. But they were not permitted to 
live long together. After the short space 
of thirty weeks his wife died, on the 15th of 
December, 1750. Her remains were buried 
in the garden at the house. In the course 
of time the house was torn down and the 
garden changed into a meadow. Hence 
her grave was in the meadow. In the year 
1880, her remains (not much could be found 
any more) were removed to the " Brubacher 
family grave yard " on the same farm and 
the grave marked with a marble grave stone 
bearing her name and date of death. 

(2) John Brubacher married as his second 
wife Maria Tauner, eldest daughter of Mi- 
chael Tauner, (since changed to Doner) 
April 30th, 1 75 1. (Maria Tauner was born 
February nth, 1729, and died June 21st, 
1802, aged 73 years, 4 months and 10 days.) 
Her sister was married to her husband's 
brother, (2) Daniel Brubacher. 

(2) John and Maria (Tauner) Brubacher 
begat sons and daughters, viz : (3) John 
Brubacher was born February 19th, 1752 
"Old Style". (He died March 30th, 1783, 
aged 31 years, i month and 11 days.) He 
married Anna Eby. Their children are, (4)

had 2 children. 

(3) Maria Brubacher was born July 6th, 
1756. She died July 12th, 1827, aged 71 
years and 6 days. She married John Baer, 
of Elizabeth township, Lancaster Co., Pa.

gat children. (4) John, (4) Anna, (4) Ben-

George and Weaver. Their children

(5) Maria, (6) John, (5; Magdalena, (5)

(3) Jacob Brubacher was born June nth, 
1758. He died of yellow fever, August 31st, 
1793, aged 35 years, 2 months and 20 days. 
He married, in the year 1781, Susan Erb, 
daughter of Christian Erb. She was born 



— 15 — 

March 17th, 1762, and died January 22d, 
1844, aged 81 years, 10 months and 5 days. 
Her brothers and sisters are, Joseph Erb, 
Daniel Erb, John Erb, Abraham Erb, Jacob 
Erb, Benjamin Erb, EUzabeth Erb, Mag- 
dalena Erb, Anna Erb, Barbara Erb, Chris- 
tian Erb. 

As already remarked (3) Jacob Brubach- 
er died in 1793. His widow remained in 
widowhood nearly 5i years. In the year 
1809 she traveled to Canada West to visit 
her daughter Maria, married to Benjamin 
Eby, her parents, three of her brothers and 
fo2ir sisters, who were all living in Canada 
West — then a wilderness. 

The names of her brothers and sisters liv- 
ing in Canada are, Jacob, Abraham, John, 
Elisabeth, Barbara, Anna and Magdalena. 

In the year 18 16 she went the second 
time to Canada, accompanied by her young- 
est son John, who was single. She re- 
mained in Canada two years, keeping house 
for her son, John, until he married. She 
then returned home to spend the evening of 
her life continuing the necessary prepara- 
tion to exchange this life with eternity. 

On one of her journeys over the Alleghe- 
nies, she killed a large rattlesnake with her 
cane, proving that she was a very coura- 
geous woman.

The following ls a description of 

David K. and Anna (Hammaker) 

Stauffer's ancestors and brothers 

and sisters. 

David K. Stauffer, was a son of Martin 
and Maria (Kauffman) Stauffer. 

Martin Stauffer was a son of John and 
Barbara (Amweg) Stauffer. 

John Stauffer was a son of Christian 
Stauffer. 

Christian Stauffer had two sons, John and 
Jacob. Whether he had more children 
cannot be ascertained. He was born in 
Germany, on the *' Mueckenhseuserhol'," in 
Wartenberg, in the Pfalz. He had three 
brothers ; the name of one was John, who 
was born August 6th, 1715, in Germany. 
He married Catharine Shenk, of Conestoga, 
Lancaster Co. 

(1) Christian Stauffer, his two sons, three 
brothers, and his mother emigrated to 
America, though in what year cannot be as- 



15V 



certained. These four sons hauled their 
niother, by hand, on a httle wagon, from 
their home in Germany, to the ship. After 
they landed in Philadelphia, they procured 
a wagon again, and hauled their mother 
from Philadelphia through the wilderness 
to the Hammer Creek, about 4 miles north 
of Lititz, Lancaster Co., where they settled 
and founded a "mill seat," known for 
many years as " Stauffer's mill." On their 
journey from Philadelphia, one of the sons 
was lost. No doubt he lost himself in the 
wilderness. It was a noble work of those 
four sons to haul their mother, and stands as 
a monument of that filial affection which all 
children owe to their parents.

1734. He died January 13th, 1799, aged 
64 years, 9 months and 17 days. He mar-

years, 11 months and 4 days), daughter of 
John Martin and Barbara (Wissler) Amweg. 
They settled in "Gruben land." Thence 
they moved to a mill seat on the Big Chi- 
quis creek, about two miles east of Mount 
Hope, which they bought of a man by the 
name of Lentz.
